It'll be interesting to see these results. Besides some other downfalls I see, the single most drawback for any IDE I've seen is that they all lack a decent text editor. It would be nice if you could easily use any text editor you wanted (say, vim for example) in the IDE. I don't mean an emulator, which all fall short of the real deal, but the actual text editor. Is it really that difficult to all drop-in replacements for that?
Only started programming this year learning Python. My IDE of choice is eric (but version 4 for Python 2.6/2.7 and version 5 for Python 3.0). Eric3 isn't even available for download from their site. Maybe update/include eric4 or just leave it at eric?
I usually use vim combined with straight command-line gcc for building, but I use Geany on occasions when I'm running out of VTs or when my work is spread across too many files to make that feasible. Voted Geany
I use Vim with a few scripts... Then if I program on Windows I'll use GPS (for Ada programming) but it's really rare that I do... I might more in the year to come. I voted for Geany as I used it a few times to get an idea and "teach"/help someone (learning) programming basics and liked it, though it's not my first choice.
